A Girl and her Jackalope

Have you ever just had an idea for something with no real reason behind it except that it would just be cool? Well, I had one of those when we made plans to visit Joshua Tree National Park over the days we were spending out there for my birthday. People love taking pictures with their pets, and sadly, we are a petless household right now, with the exception of one, rather stiff, little buddy, Mr. Van Cleef, our jackalope, with whom I have wanted to do photos with for sometime.

I won’t lie, I have completely fallen head over heels in love with chiffon maxi skirts over the last year, but have had trouble finding some without either spending an arm and a leg, or shopping at stores I hate. So when I found two chiffon maxis (including this one), a few weeks ago, it was like hitting the jackpot. I love the fact that they still evoke an old west feel, but also feel like something else entirely, not to mention are perfect for the heat of California.

  1. Love the Jackalope and your maxi skirt. A maxi skirt is simple to make and it is really easy to make it reversible. Just sew it up the side and make a elastic waist. If you want it to be reversible, sew up the sides, put the 2 together and then do the elastic waist. Easy peasy.

  2. These are so cute! It’s a fabulous idea and wonderfully executed. I can’t pick a favourite photo because they’re all so awesome. Mr. Van Cleef is like your little familiar. Also, your outfit is amazing as usual. I am in love with your skirt!


  3. These photos are amazing! With the desert rocks and plants in the background, they look like stills from a movie. Your jackalope is adorable and a great model dispite only knowing one pose and sticking with it!

  4. Seriously fantastic photo shoot idea. I love the whimsy, fun, and landscape at work here, as well as your terrific idea. I’m really in the mood to think outside the box with my own photo shoots this year and you’ve definitely inspired me (big time!) there with this awesome one (thank you!).
